Medical Marijuana Advocates Rally In Lansing Wednesday
Hundreds of medical marijuana advocates took to the Capitol lawn in Lansing Wednesday.
They voiced opposition to new legislation that would limit the abilities of caregivers in Michigan.
Currently, caregivers can grow 12 plants per patient with a total of up to 72 plants.
The proposed legislation is aimed at slowing black market marijuana sales. It would limit caregivers to three plants per patient and 12 total plants. It would also increase the red tape for caregivers to harvest their plants.
Protestors say it is corporate greed trying to pinch them out while hurting patients in the long run.
The proposed bill has not been taken up for a vote just yet.
